The ABB FIA Formula E Championship has become the first sport to have a net zero carbon footprint since its inception.

Formula E's announcement was made during the launch of Climate Week NYC 2020.

Formula E has been calculating the overall footprint of the championship since its inaugural season, with a continual focus on lowering emissions
Following the recommended approach set out by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), Formula E has followed three key steps to achieve a net zero carbon footprint - effective measurement of carbon output, prioritising reducing its footprint, and offsetting remaining unavoidable emissions.

Working closely with Quantis, the leading life cycle assessment and sustainability experts, Formula E has been calculating the overall footprint of the championship since its inaugural season, with a continual focus on lowering emissions.

Its emission reduction measures, including optimising transport and logistics, extending end-of-life options for lithium-ion battery cells and cutting out single-use plastics on site, has led to it becoming the first and only racing category to receive third-party ISO 20121 certification for sustainable events.

Unavoidable emissions from the past six seasons have now also been certified as offset through investment in Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Standard UN projects in line with the UNFCCC's Clean Development Mechanism.
